... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through this afternoon...
The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for
* portions of central Arkansas... eastern Arkansas... southeast
Arkansas... southwest Arkansas and western Arkansas... including
the following areas... in central Arkansas... Conway...
Faulkner... Garland... Grant... Lonoke... Perry... prairie...
Pulaski... Saline... white and Yell. In eastern Arkansas...
Monroe and Woodruff. In southeast Arkansas... Arkansas and
Jefferson. In southwest Arkansas... Clark... Dallas... Hot Spring
and Pike. In western Arkansas... Montgomery... Polk and Scott.
* Through this afternoon
* an additional 1 to 2 inches of rainfall will be possible through
this afternoon across the watch area. The axis of heaviest
rainfall will extend roughly along an axis either side of the
Interstate 30 corridor to Little Rock... then east along
Interstate 40. These amounts will will be in addition to the
heavy rainfall amounts of 3 to over 6 inches that have already
fallen the past couple days.
* With vegetation going dormant... any additional rainfall will
likely just run off as soils across the watch area are already
saturated. As a result... flash flooding will remain a
possibility. Also... area river flooding is possible or will
continue as result of this excessive rainfall.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
